Abstract

This article explores ways in which involvement in a tertiary Christian service learning unit can affect participants. The research is based on the use (with permission) of qualitative data collected over a three-year period from second and fourth year Education students at The University of Notre Dame Australia.

The paper initially explores literature on Christian service learning. An outline of the specific unit offered in the School of Education is then summarised along with the rationale underpinning the unit. Student reflections are then considered in the contexts of The Nature of Christian Service Learning, Social Awareness, and Transformation.
